Ok, so what happened?

Post by ukpadmin » Sat Nov 27, 2010 1:04 am

For those of you which missed out on all the fun of the last week, the short version of the story is ukpreppers.com is shortly going to be turned off. We decided it was too good to just let it die, so we created this new home for us.

I have archived the old forums, you can get access by going to the Archive forum at the bottom.

There are a few changes to the forums, mainly the forum titles. We hope it makes sense, but we will be tweaking it to get it right.

So...who are 'we'. Well the new admin team lineup is me (scoobie), Northern Raider and Magz. We hope this will provide a balanced moderation team, and we also hope to not have to do tooo much moderation!

We will be posting some posting guidelines, rather than rules. There is, however a couple of rules which we will not budge on. No discussion of anything illegal, no racism, no bullying. They're the main no-no's but we will clarify this shortly for you all... Nothing groundbreaking, just common sense!

Thats all for now!

Thanks all... I think it was the quickest I have ever put a complete site together! Start to finish was about 16 hours... finished at 2am this morning!

Still..it was worth it to get something up and in place before the old site shuts down...just went to have a look and post on the old forum about this site being up, and NR has already posted it once or twice!! :)

Shall we let people on P2S and Ludlow that we're back if they want to come back?

Fantastic effort scoobie, the new forum is looking great. That’s a damn fine 16 hours work! Think you’ve earned yourself a beer! Bit early yet though!
